At Sorgen Dentistry, we’re proud to provide patients of all ages with quality, convenient dental care. As a leading Oklahoma City dentist, Dr. Bryan Sorgen offers a wide range of general, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatments, and we strive to make the dental treatment process convenient for even the busiest of lifestyles. If you’ve been wanting a brighter, more beautiful smile but don’t want to commit to extensive treatment, dental bonding can offer a simple, effective, and convenient solution.
Dental bonding, also called composite bonding, is a less invasive alternative to porcelain veneers. Both offer a simple way to repair cracks, chips, discoloration, or other minor cosmetic issues in your smile, but while veneers use thin porcelain shells affixed to the front of teeth to correct issues, composite bonding works by applying a layer of tooth-colored dental resin to the front of teeth. After applying and letting the resin set, Dr. Bryan Sorgen, your OKC dentist, will then trim the resin to match the natural shape of your teeth, smooth it to a natural feel, and polish it for a truly beautiful smile.
The bonding process is simple, and we can often complete the entire procedure in one visit. First, Dr. Bryan Sorgen, your OKC dentist, will lightly etch the surface of the tooth and apply a bonding liquid “primer” to help the resin bond with the natural tooth structure. Then, Dr. Sorgen will apply layers of dental resin to each tooth as needed, carefully sculpting the resin to perfectly match the look and shape of your natural teeth. After allowing the resin to set, Dr. Sorgen will then trim, smooth, and polish the resin to complete your new smile.
For many patients, dental bonding offers a simple, convenient solution for achieving a new smile without extensive dental work. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you’re considering composite bonding with Dr. Bryan Sorgen:
